About this Event

January 22 - February 21, 2021

Canada Modern is a physical and digital archive of Canadian graphic design, with modernism central to its glowing heart.

In its first ever exhibition, Canada Modern features a selection of artefacts by trailblazing designers, active in the years 1960-85, who contributed to the emergence of a bold and new Canadian visual identity during an exciting period of modernization in the nation’s history.

Also on display are new works that enrich our understanding of the archive by participating artists Antonio Carusone of Aisle One / Superlunar, Shelby Guergis, Julian Montague, and Juan Saavedra.
